And again we have a love story here... at least by the name of the fragrance. As already described at the EDT the other day, unfortunately I can't tell a love story, well, for lack of girlfriend and so on, mu ha ha ha, I could only tell about a few love movies, but also not so good, because I don't watch such movies very often... unless there is a totally charming actress, like Audrey Tautou... *seeeufz* :D
Since I'm talking about Frenchmen... oui oui, they are world champions now, the game was great and quite goal rich and the games are also over with it. So you surely have plenty of time to read all my stupid comments, in which I constantly whine and get on everyone's nerves :D
There, but back to the scent. I recently introduced the EDT of this fragrance here. Today I'll try to tell you the differences to the EDP, which there are here, even if on the "first nose" both scents should be quite similar.
The fragrance actually begins almost like the EDT. You can smell beautiful neroli, light (and indeterminable) flowers and a slightly sweetish note, which in contrast to EDT is stronger here. Hmm... Stephanotis?? I have no idea how this wreath loop smells, but since it belongs to the jasmine plants and should also smell strongly, I assume that the sweetness radiates from this plant and the smell has therefore a somewhat more intensive sweetness than the EDT here.
Also later I smell a lot of neroli and blossom scents to the base, the sweet notes are still present, but meanwhile weakened (and weaken also more and more) and resemble now also more the sweetness of the musk instead of that of jasmine. And almost usual for a base note you can smell the cedar wood, which is a big difference to the EDT, because cedar or even woody notes are not present in the EDT.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is somewhat higher than with the EDT, at least at the beginning. After a certain time, however, both scents can appear again rather equally strong.
The shelf life is a little higher, so that the fragrance comes for a little more than eight hours.
The bottle is great as always. It is rectangular with grooves in the glass and a chromed upper "rim" in which the brand name was engraved. The bottle might remind a little of antique buildings, which I think is pretty great (similar to the Roma flacons, although this is more obvious in the Roma scents and here the whole thing only seems to me as if the flacons were like antique buildings).
There is no label, the name of the fragrance is printed on the bottom of the bottle. Also here there is the swivelling handle thing (what do you call something like that? :D) with a nice silk bow in the same colour as the scent liquid on it (light pastel green). A great bottle, where the EDT looks a little prettier because of the pink scent liquid.
Soo... first of all: I don't quite understand one thing here... the EDP was rated significantly worse than the EDT, hmm... sure, there are some differences between the scents, but as long as you don't have anything against some stronger-looking neroli in the base (which makes the scent citric-sour than the EDT), then I find both versions of the scent equally successful, which is also the reason why I rate both scents the same.
Like the EDT, the fragrance here is also absolutely great for spring and summer, I would even rather say summer, because the fragrances are not so strong in their charisma and on warmer days certainly better unfold, instead of being blown away by the wind at the slightest breeze :D
The scents may be too weak to go out, but you could still try them because they smell nice. Who has the agony of the choice, should test simply both times extensively. The EDT is generally warmer and less citric, the EDP shines slightly stronger and smells more like neroli or orange blossoms, even in the base still. Both are beautiful fragrances, which are simply built up, but come across nice.
Soo, now there is still the Eau Sensuelle (which smells great, I'm already excited to test him)... and I bet, until the test I still have no "Love Story" to tell... aaaaaaaargh and *seeeeeufz* ! DD
